Most often natural consequences are the best teaching tool - - not sure what the history is with your son, but just from your post, I'd let whatever happen - happen. The next time he will be all the more careful because he experienced first hand what will happen if you're not careful with $.
- Just sharing my experience, as I have 3-adult daughters.....
Honestly, this is a sad situation for your first 2-children.
You live in another state and have a new family. Your children realize they are not your top priority - your new wife and new child are.
You should move near your children, have a relationship with them, and see them weekly, then come summer they could be with you and it wouldn't be just a visitation - but more of a natural occurrence and not up-root them from their friends and stability. -KathleenView Thread
